A lot of people have definitely tried the chocolate smoothie with banana and nut milk, but in Lena's recipe the main ingredient is raw buckwheat. Raw buckwheat is a treasure trove of protein, vitamins and micro elements! It's easy to digest, boosts immune system, excretes cholesterol and toxins, strengthens the vessels and purifies the liver. So this smoothie will be a great and healthy breakfast or a quick snack for when you need an energy boost and a good recharge.
